Time to focus on training
Date: 27/6/2011
It's been fairly quiet for me since the World Championships. A lot of the team went to Germany but I stayed in Manchester to focus on my training.

I have the under 23 European Championships in Portugal coming up and so my main focus is now on that. This should be a more relaxed event for me than the recent senior World class events that I've been to. It will give me chance to just monitor how my training and fitness is going with just over a year to the London 2012 Olympic Games. I will be taking part in several events including the Team Sprint with Becky James, the Individual Sprint and the Time Trial. It'd be fantastic to come home from this event with some medals but at the moment my focus is just on enjoying the event and using it as great experience.

So far I think my preparation has been going really well. I am feeling happy and enjoying myself and thankfully have no injury problems. However my muscles do get very sore from such intensive training all the time.

After this event my focus will turn to the Elite European Championships in Poland in September.
Outside of training I went to Dudley College to do a motivational talk to students. This was only the second time I've done anything like this so was pleased with how it went and it's good to get some more public speaking experience.

Exciting news for me is that I've got a new sponsor in Adidas and they've used me in their stores all over the country to celebrate one year to go to the Olympic Games.

Thank you to everyone who has read my blogs over the last few months. Keep an eye out for how
I do over the next year and thank you for the support.
